A Citywide Network of People who Champion Urban Greenspace


about us

The network seeks to elevate the status of parks in the public dialogue, especially among public officials. We are park-connected groups and individuals who care about a healthy and vibrant city.

Boston’s parks and open spaces enrich our lives and make our neighborhoods liveable. These places are our parks, schoolyards, athletic fields, streets, sidewalks, bikeways, community gardens, beaches, greenways, urban wilds, and reservations.

We represent the myriad of organizations that use Boston's parks and open spaces. 

Click here to sign up to receive our e-blasts, which we send approximately twice per month.

If you are an advocate for open space in Boston, we invite you to join our Google Group to communicate with fellow advocates. Click here to subscribe.
